The New Gambia Movement is pleased to announce that we have launched a “Feed the Family Project” to support needy members of the Gambian family nation at home. At its meeting of Sunday, February 5, the Movement’s leadership team took the initiative to contribute whatever they could and send these monies to our National Organizing Secretary Pierre Gomez and our Director of Communications and Media Relations Badou Gaye in Banjul for disbursement to needy individuals and charitable organizations on the ground. As of today, Saturday February 18, 2017, the leadership team has collected and sent to Banjul D24, 600.77 which will be disbursed to needy individuals and charity organizations in The Gambia in the coming days and weeks.
The Feed the Family Project is an ongoing endeavor to which all members are invited and encouraged to contribute whatever they can over time. The New Gambia Movement feels that while our primary mission is to spread political enlightenment and facilitate our people’s civic empowerment, we should also chip in once in a while to help the most needy members of the Gambian Family Nation. Hence we anticipate the growth of a permanent Feed the Family Fund to which members can contribute once in a while to assist needy members of our Gambian Family Nation from now on. The Movement will keep the general public posted on funds collected and disbursements made going forward. Our plans also include launching a permanent national emergency fund to assist victims of both man-made and natural disasters across the country.
